You need to install packages manually. They're not installed by default to have a faster installation, but you can perfectly add all of them from the command line.
(remember to run `sudo apt update` before doing any search/install)
To search the name of a package run `apt search <name>` and then install it via `sudo apt install <pkg>`
If you want to install all the packages that come preinstalled with the default kali install kali-linux-default `sudo apt install kali-linux-default`
